Plenty of ebuilds seem to work from multiple source packages... I can't 
see a particular difficulty in writing one that installs wxHaskell 
source and documentation simultaneously.

Although having said that, I can't get wxHaskell stuff to link properly 
on my Gentoo box at the moment, probably because my OpenGL setup is 
rather broken.
